The Rescue of Prometheus

The Most Honest Counsel to the King, Immunity The JESTER’S thing;
Serious by name, Illuminating TRUTH his game;
by which a Kingdom Comes
"Once again, Gentlemen, I ask, Why have you failed to get this done yet? It begs the question, "If you CANNOT get this ONE Veteran his benefits restored after MALPRACTICE victimized him, WHAT CAN YOU DO about anything, what are you WILLING to do, and why has this small task stymied you and made you all look TOTALLY INCOMPETENT in the face of CRIMINALS ROBBING VETERANS?"
Sen. John McCain;
Staff: Bob Currieo
Bob, John, I had an unfortunate incident with your LYING receptionist today. She attempted to put me off with a blatant lie that the Veterans Administration was beyond your control! She is an insensitive and unacceptable first impression for the Senator’s image. She is NOT authorized to speak on your behalf is she? She must be remanded to stick to her receptionist duties and job description, and not be rendering "opinions" to us. Since when does the VA ignore the ARMED SERVICES COMMITTEE? I have had enough abuse from this administration. Your effectiveness so far is not impressive, when I know it would only take a phonecall. I not only DEMAND my full benefits be IMMEDIATELY restored, I demand FULL 100% paid retroactively to my date of discharge, 18 Feb 1969. One phone call to the VA, one to the TREASURY. Make those calls NOW.
How long do you think millions of disabled veterans are going to tolerate this INACTION, this criminal malpractice by the VA? I for one have long ago lost my patience, respect, and trust of this government. I hope you notice that I am NOT calling it MY government. With this LONG unresolved situation, I believe I can restore my financial freedom by PUBLISHING my experiences with the VA & McCain’s Office [this has been more than a year this time!], as it appears the media is offering big money for even small stories of INJUSTICE. I am considering this seriously now, as well as contacting your office {for a "last chance"} because I experienced several hours of phone conversations with a S. Ca. program producer, who wants to do a documentary about MY LIFE! (and distribute it on DVD) I thought that would be exciting news to a friend of mine, but he has eclipsed me. He is going to appear on Jay Leno soon. Our Veterans treatment by this VA has been, and continues to be a National Shame, and I am sorely tempted to put my words into the pot of political ruin for John by agreeing to some of these interview offers. I think it may be because I am an "Atomic" veteran, and many are now seriously concerned for our returning uranium contaminated Iraq veterans. Whatever, I none the less exercise my right to demand REDRESS of GRIEVANCE. Draft a personal legislative solution if need be!
I DEMAND, I COMMAND my representative to correct this injustice, & to cease and desist from actions or inactions which delay or prevent the full and immediate restoration of 100% disability benefits UNJUSTLY and improperly denied me, Frank Richard Lavoie, and I also deserve a WRITTEN APOLOGY from the VA Director for the DENIAL of DUE Process, DENIAL of IMMEDIATE CORRECTION of THEIR ERROR, their malpractice. Further, I am entitled to DAMAGES, and impact mitigation award.
Make it happen. No deadlines, no ‘triggers’ no earmarks, no bull.
The only response I will tolerate from McCain’s Office is "DONE. Your benefits are in the bank."
If you cant tell me that, don’t bother to reply, I will be on talk radio.
Very Sincerely and Seriously, the impatient veteran…
Frank Lavoie"
"My Dear King," said the
JESTER, "this is indeed a sad thing. Won’t you hear the petitioner’s prayer for relief?"
‘Give me one good reason.’ Sneered the King.
"Because there are millions more just like him in line already, and the war keeps the line growing well beyond the castle walls, sir."
"Tell them a Story, JESTER, and let them EAT CAKE. A long story, Jester. I am tired. GO!
